When videocard manufacturers deviate from the reference design, it's generally done to differentiate its offerings from the competition. OCC has taken the ASUS EAH 4770 Formula Series card out for a spin, so to speak, to see how well the card performs - http://www.overclock...ah4770_formula/

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 2.83GHz / ASUS P5Q Deluxe / Patriot Extreme Performance 2GB PC2-9600 DDR2-1200MHz / 2x Seagate ST3160827AS 160GB RAID 1 / Seagate ST31000340AS 1TB
Corsair TX750W / Sapphire HD 5870 1GB GDDR5 / SilverStone TJ05 / Scythe Zipang 140mm CPU Cooler / ASUS VH202T-P 20" widescreen monitor (x2) / XP Pro SP 3

that little cooler made me chuckle, looks like a good card (though like you said, 40nm's are so few in quantity that their price/performance isn't anywhere as good as it could be. I still refer people who are looking at 4770s over to getting a 4850

Despite the price/performance issue you mentioned, 4770's are scarce here in NZ with most stores selling out all their stock like hotcakes.

it's a shame they can't keep up with the demand, it's such a great card but they are asking just a bit to much for me to ever recommend it. It's really efficient but the 4850 has a little extra performance saved up
